REMINDER: The deadline date for North East Lecturer’s Conference is July 10.
Everyone must pre-register, you cannot just show up except Monday evening for Maine’s program “Transportation” at 7:00 p.m. If you are coming to “Spirit Night” only, Tuesday evening at 7:00, there is a $10.00 registration fee (sent to Margaret). Questions contact Sherry.


Congratulations to our story and skit writers. I enjoyed them all very much. I agreed that each should receive a first place award. Stories will be printed in the book with poetry entries and made available September 12 at the Lecturer’s Conference 10:00am to 1:00 pm (no lunch). Awards will be presented at noon. Those submitting stories, skits or poetry will receive a free book.
